Prayer Ministry
PDF Print E-mail

At First Baptist, we believe in the power of prayer. God calls us to praise and thank Him for who He is. He tells us He will hear from heaven our prayers and respond to us if we will humble ourselves and ask Him through prayer. As a result, we have numerous ways where you can get involved praying to our Father. For information, check out the programs below on our ministry.

If you have a prayer need, please click here. Your request will be submitted to our Intercessory Prayer Room.

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4: 4-7
